Our patients testify


Which pathologies are treated by medical acupuncture?

Overweight and obesity

Acupuncture restores the body's natural balance by exerting an influence on the endocrine systems that regulate it, and helps reduce feelings of hunger. More than 20 years of research and scientific studies have demonstrated that the Sinomedica Shou Shen® program, combining weekly acupuncture sessions and a diet, is effective in helping patients to reach their ideal weight without feeling hungry.

Stress, anxiety and burnout

In cases of stress-related symptoms like sleep disorders, anxiety and concentration problems, but also when it comes to serious conditions such as burnout and depression, acupuncture helps significantly reduce symptoms and bring better balance. In general, it makes one feel better and uplifted, improving quality of life.


Acupuncture acts as a natural pain reliever without side effects. It is effective in treating many chronic pain conditions: postoperative pain, headaches and migraines, neck pain, chronic low back pain, dysmenorrhea, gonarthrosis, cancer pain, childbirth pain, acute low back pain, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Integrated oncology

As a supportive treatment for cancer diseases, acupuncture reduces chemotherapy and radiation therapy side effects (nausea, vomiting, pain, anxiety, and fatigue), helps to better cope with a difficult situation psychologically, and to regain mental and physical balance.
